What beautiful markings!! Luckily Drake is 4 yrs old and hasn't chewed things up. He's been in the A/S before we we pulled up the carpet and seems to like it.

My brother had a lab that chewed up 2 sofas, a couple of linoleum floors, and countless other things.

I've been traveling with my dogs for years. Long walks are the answer, get them good and tired and put them down for a nap. I don't travel to places with them where I would have to leave them in the trailer with only the generator to run the a/c in my opinion that is asking for trouble. You have to keep in mind that dogs temps run much hotter than humans so if its hot for us it is miserable for them.

Love all the pics!

Danes do fit in an Airstream!

A few snaps from our month long California trip last March. Hannah is 11 years now and camping is a lot of work for her these days.

Do you leave them in places with full hookups? I would be afraid to leave them with just a generator too.

I know that certain tourist websites (Cumbersome Toltec & One of the National parks) have recommendations for day boarding for those traveling with dogs.

What are some things I need to think about when traveling with dogs? Things that will help me be a better/more responsible neighbor when camping?

Have Dane will travel

Thanks, yes Hannah is very sweet. You must know from living with The Drake that there's no love like Great Dane love. I think if Hannah could glue herself to me she definetely would. She is my baby girl after all, even at 11 years old.

I do leave them in the trailer when I want to go run around, but not for long stretches. Helpful to leave the tv or stereo on so they don't notice outside noises as much. Hannah does love to bark! I also tend to park in farther out spaces, much preferable in general to being packed in tight with other rv's, an end spot is the way to go. As I said before its all about getting them good and tired by taking nice long walks. My dogs are serious nappers anyway. They absolutely love to travel, I also had a Rott mix, so in all I had around 230 lbs of dog traveling with me, that got a bit tight in the Airstream but everyone had their spot when it was time to go to bed.

Be warned between having an Airstream and a Great Dane you will have lots of people coming around to visit, always a good thing.

In my house if I say 'we're going camping' I'd better have the trailer packed and ready to go because the pooch excitement takes over. Once they see the trailer in the drive forget about it, they can't wait.

There really isn't love like a Great Dane. I have a blue heeler as well and there really is a difference.

I understand your warning. Walking a Dane is never accomplished without cars stopping to comment and people coming over! People whipping out their phones to take pics, but the Dane love more than makes up for it.

Considering how many people have just walked up wanting to look inside the A/S while we are working on it... I can just imagine the combo. Hopefully A/S love will make it worth it!

You should have seen Drake barking at the A/S when he first saw it in the drive. Now he just wants to be in it, which is a problem since we are working on it.

As for pooch excitement... we have to spell walk because he can get persistent. Maybe we shouldn't teach them a term for camping. Thanks for the advice.

You're welcome.

Since Drake already wants to be in the A/S sounds like he'll make a fine camping dog. You'll have to take plenty of pictures for us all to see him in action!

OMG the comments people make when they see you walking a Dane; "What is it? Where'd you get the pony? How much does that thing eat?" etc. If they only knew how many times I've heard every one of those comments, e gads. I saw my first Dane at 7 years old, all I said was "I want one".

Cheers~

I will take plenty of pictures. Since I don't post pic of the kids on the internet often, I do them of the dogs instead.

My "favorite" comment is "Do you have a saddle for that thing?". I saw my first dane in a Barnes & Noble in Menlo Park Mall, NJ and fell in love. He was a grey brindle and he let my kids crawl up and love on him. It just took me a year to convince my husband. He thought I was crazy... now he thinks I'm genius! At least about dogs!

Almost as classic as the horse!! Because Drake is a harlequin, I sometimes joke that he's a cow instead!

I think most dogs like to go camping.

They get lots of quality time. Sometimes they can limit your options,
but it often is just easier to bring them along.

I read that Akitas had some Great Dane bred in many years ago.

We just returned from an 8 day camping run. Always take Harley, our 3 year old 130# golden--he's solid muscle and very large but with a super cool temperment--he's our avatar. He functions very well in the Airstream.
The only danger with us is that he sleeps on the floor at night and tends to move around during the night looking for a new cool spot. A dark trip to the bathroom is interesting (where's the dog, where's the dog?).
We get a lot of questions when we are out for a walk but people are usually really nice and H-dog likes the extra attention. He's like the Airstream--you get to meet a lot of new people that you would otherwise never speak with.
My only complaint is that it seems impossible to find a good location to keep a water bowl on the floor for the dog. It always seems to be in the way and gets kicked.
